More Honesty Experiments

I've been carrying out a series of experiments using Liquitex iridescent medium and paints using honesty seeds as the inspiration. This piece started out life as a machine quilting sampler, then first trials of acrylic paint application and currently layers and layers of pearlescent paint and acrylic inks.

The final layer was neat pearlescent ink- it looks rather harsh in some lights but like oversalting soup to find the right seasoning levels, sometimes you have to push the limits to know how to do it better next time.
